BERLIN - World Cup-winning captain Philipp Lahm has retired from playing for Germany. The German Football Federation (DFB) says the 30-year-old Lahm informed its president Wolfgang Niersbach of his decision in a telephone call on Friday. Lahm played 113 games for Germany since his debut in a 2-1 victory over Croatia on Feb. 18, 2004. Niersbach says, "I could tell very early in the conversation that it was futile to try to talk him out of his decision. He wasnt only an outstanding playing in 10 years with the national team, but always an absolute role model. I thanked him for everything he delivered for the DFB." Germany coach Joachim Loew was informed of Lahms decision on Monday. Lahm recently extended his contract with Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich to 2018. Bradley Beal Jersey .

Rooney was left out of the starting line-up in Ljubljana and only came on as a 73rd-minute substitute.It was Hart who was Englands standout player, pulling off a string of saves to help the visitors hold out for a point in the World Cup qualifying Group F clash. Asked about Rooney afterwards, the goalkeeper told Sky Sports: Everyone knows Wayne is our leader. Every day no matter what he is doing he leads us.Jordan [Henderson] did really well tonight, taking over the role as captain in a pretty blown up circumstance with Wayne not playing. Gareth Southgate conceded his side had to be happy with a 0-0 draw Wayne helped him, we helped Jordan, and we move forward as a team.dddddddddddd We were always going to do that.There are plenty of people in the squad who deserve to play and its down to the manager who he picks and we support him.Having won their first two group games, England were largely second best against Slovenia, with the hosts only denied by a combination of the woodwork and Harts superb goalkeeping. England goalkeeper Hart makes a stunning save We would have loved to come here and get three points but it wasnt meant to be, said the keeper, who is on loan at Torino from Manchester City. Slovenia executed a good game plan, they sat off us and looked to counter. They played well, we didnt.We still thought we did enough to win the game but we have to take the point.We are top of the table and our main objective is to qualify for Russia. Three clean sheets, two wins and a draw is something we can build on.
